Great new book by Wayne Dyer .
on 27 March 2012
In Change Your Thoughts - Change Your Life Wayne dyer took a year to read and translate hundreds of translations of the Tao Te Ching , the works of Lao Tzu to bring to us a unique perspective of this classic book in a modern day world. In a way, Wayne dyer has continued with this process in his new book Wishes fulfilled - Mastering The Art of Manifesting .Dr Dyer focuses on the works of Uell S Andersons " 3 magic words","The Saint Germain I am discourses" and Neville Goddards " Power of Awareness ."For me, three of the greatest works I have ever read on creation.
Wayne dyer brings these works to a modern day audience blending their core teachings with his own personal philosophy. Its a mighty challenge to bring the core works of these authors to a modern day audience without losing any of their classic message but Wayner dyer has succeeded. These authors works are almost over 50 years old and how ever magnificent they are to read, some readers might find them time consuming and quite hard to digest in their tone. Reading wishes fulfilled - Mastering The Art Of Manifesting you will get the core of these transcendent teachings.
Its also interesting as a long time reader of this author to read about how he has dealt with his diagnosis with leukaemia and how his philosophy has only been strengthened by these works. He truly practices what he preaches. I was also interested to read Dr dyers take on the disease as he talks honestly about forgiving and clearing energy that has been stuck with relationships and child hood in his own life. In fact taking from the I am discourses maybe the only affirmation we truly need is " I am divine love". Most of what we want to create sometimes is to get love or to gain love through things that are really manifesting from the ego. If we are that love we can get on in manifesting our souls purpose and our truth with ease. Dr Dyer talks about that if we are creating from divine love everything we need will effortlessly be created from that state. It is from that state that we are gods.
There are a couple of chapters in the book that have not been written about or glossed over in other books on the subject of manifestation. Such as, we can only create effortlessly in our lives in what feels natural to us. Which is at odds at with some teachings where where we just have to "feel it and its ours" or if its not manifested yet "you are not feeling it enough", you have failed. In conversation with an interviewer who asked Dr Dyer in the book "if i can create anything i want then why can't I be a basketball star or an astronaut"? Wayne Dyer replied" Does it feel natural to you"? The interviewer says no it does not. " The time it takes your assumption to become reality is proportion to the naturalness of being it. " To make the point even more, Wayne Dyer talks about a 5 foot 7 basketball player who dunks and scores regularly in the NBA who said " people said I would never be able to play in the NBA and dunk like I do but it feels natural to me". It is our imagination and subconscious mind that has to be filled with images and I am's until it does feel natural.Again with very little effort. The more effort required would suggest that you are trying to create something that comes from ego rather than your higher self. That asking ourselves why we haven't received what we have created yet it is a great question to ask ourselves: Does it feel natural?
The second chapter that I found quite unique was " Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep" where Wayne dyer talks about the five minutes before we sleep and how its is such an important part of our manifestation process. Something that I hadn't really considered before as like most, my mind sometimes wanders about the day I have had or fears of the future might creep in also. He talks about even if you have had a terrible day it is the last five minutes which is the most important part of your day. To bring are I Ams to fill our consciousness before we sleep. We are handing over to the universal mind our images that we want to create . These last five minutes Before we temporarily join the ethereal world where are i ams become manifestation is an important part of process of creation and the mind.
I feel buying this book you will find out about the core teachings of three classic authors Neville, Anderson and the Saint Germain I am Discourses. Wayne dyer has brilliantly written his own perspective of these giants and a must for Wayne Dyers fans.
